There has been a long-running dispute between the two countries over the status of Dumeira Mountain and Dumeira Island, which is claimed by both Djibouti and Eritrea.

The two countries’ armed forces clashed on the border in 2008. Both states later accepted Qatar’s offer of mediation and the deployment of peacekeepers, though bilateral relations have remained strained.

The meeting of the four foreign ministers is the latest chapter in the rapidly thawing relations in the region that has come since Abiy Ahmed became Ethiopia’s prime minister in April.
